With your help, if you get a chance to go to Newt.org, I would like to have your support to then lead an effort across the planet to ensure that the right to bear arms becomes permanent and is a human right everywhere which will guarantee its safety in America.
— Newt Gingrich, speaking at the National Rifle Association.
Amy Davidson speculates:
Gingrich is finally ready to leave the race, and is injecting the fuel in the rocket to take him out of there. If you are going to go—and he is—go because you’re as big as ever, but the elections got too small. He’s got a broader picture in mind, one in which the Second Amendment is presented as a sort of marginal doodle: what we need, he said, is for every man, woman, and child on earth to be able to have a gun.
